Proverbs 27

RHE 1 Boast not for to morrow, for thou knowest not what the day to come may bring forth. NIV 1 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. RHE 2 Let another praise thee, and not thy own mouth: a stranger, and not thy own lips. NIV 2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips. RHE 3 A stone is heavy, and sand weighty: but the anger of a fool is heavier than them both. NIV 3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. RHE 4 Anger hath no mercy: nor fury, when it breaketh forth: and who can bear the violence of one provoked? NIV 4 Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy? RHE 5 Open rebuke is better than hidden love. NIV 5 Better is open rebuke than hidden love. RHE 6 Better are the wounds of a friend, than the deceitful kisses of an enemy. NIV 6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. RHE 7 A soul that is full shall tread upon the honeycomb: and a soul that is hungry shall take even bitter for sweet. NIV 7 One who is full loathes honey from the comb, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet. RHE 8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that leaveth his place. NIV 8 Like a bird that flees its nest is anyone who flees from home. RHE 9 Ointment and perfumes rejoice the heart: and the good counsels of a friend are sweet to the soul. NIV 9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice. RHE 10 Thy own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not: and go not into thy brother’s house in the day of thy affliction. Better is a neighbour that is near than a brother afar off. NIV 10 Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family, and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you— better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away. RHE 11 Study wisdom, my son, and make my heart joyful, that thou mayst give an answer to him that reproacheth. NIV 11 Be wise, my son, and bring joy to my heart; then I can answer anyone who treats me with contempt. RHE 12 The prudent man seeing evil hideth himself: little ones passing on have suffered losses. NIV 12 The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. RHE 13 Take away his garment that hath been surety for a stranger: and take from him a pledge for strangers. NIV 13 Take the garment of one who puts up security for a stranger; hold it in pledge if it is done for an outsider. RHE 14 He that blesseth his neighbour with a loud voice, rising in the night, shall be like to him that curseth. NIV 14 If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse. RHE 15 Roofs dropping through in a cold day, and a contentious woman are alike. NIV 15 A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping of a leaky roof in a rainstorm; RHE 16 He that retaineth her, is as he that would hold the wind, and shall call the oil of his right hand. NIV 16 restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand. RHE 17 Iron sharpeneth iron, so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. NIV 17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. RHE 18 He that keepeth the fig tree, shall eat the fruit thereof: and he that is the keeper of his master, shall be glorified. NIV 18 The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit, and whoever protects their master will be honored. RHE 19 As the faces of them that look therein, shine in the water, so the hearts of men are laid open to the wise. NIV 19 As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. RHE 20 Hell and destruction are never filled: so the eyes of men are never satisfied. NIV 20 Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes. RHE 21 As silver is tried in the fining-pot, and gold in the furnace: so a man is tried by the mouth of him that praiseth. The heart of the wicked seeketh after evils, but the righteous heart seeketh after knowledge. NIV 21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but people are tested by their praise. RHE 22 Though thou shouldst bray a fool in the mortar, as when a pestle striketh upon sodden barley, his folly would not be taken from him. NIV 22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar, grinding them like grain with a pestle, you will not remove their folly from them. RHE 23 Be diligent to know the countenance of thy cattle, and consider thy own flocks: NIV 23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; RHE 24 For thou shalt not always have power: but a crown shall be given to generation and generation. NIV 24 for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. RHE 25 The meadows are open, and the green herbs have appeared, and the hay is gathered out of the mountains. NIV 25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, RHE 26 Lambs are for thy clothing: and kids for the price of the field. NIV 26 the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. RHE 27 Let the milk of the goats be enough for thy food, and for the necessities of thy house, and for maintenance for thy handmaids. NIV 27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family and to nourish your female servants.
